Dear ,

Does your emotional life seem like a puzzle? Emotions sometimes come like a freight train and overwhelm us, or they sit just out of awareness bringing a sense of unease.

The truth is that we are so much bigger than our emotions, and they can’t begin to define our true nature. Whenever you’re experiencing emotions, there is also something that is untouched by them, something that can hold them in a vast, loving embrace.

I’ve been learning so much about emotion recently, and I’ve been finding it incredibly useful. Did you know that the brain is wired to experience emotions? And that emotions help protect us in the face of threat?

Feelings come; they’re a natural part of this human life. But their power dissolves when we meet them with love and understanding.

Are emotions challenging for you? Then let’s get practical. My newest post is called A Practical Guide to Loving Your Emotions, and you can read it by clicking here.

I’d love to hear about your experience, so feel free to leave a comment or ask a question.

Wishing you love, joy, and celebration,
